So I go to my mailbox yesterday and I’m greeted by a lovely letter from the City of Los Angeles, informing me that since I chose not to respond to the parking citation they allegedly left on my car (on Oct 18th), the $40 fine is now $80.
Swell, say I, except that I never got any damned parking ticket, and I ALWAYS over-feed meters to avoid just this type of occurrence.
So what’s the deal? I can only guess that either no ticket was ever issued or someone took the ticket off my car and I never saw it.
Had I found a ticket on my car I would have snapped a pic of the meter with time on it to submit as my defense – but since October 18th has come and gone I have no recourse but to pay the damned thing and just be pissed off.
I know the city is broke but this is re-goddamn-diculous.
